Eagle Talon

Is my talon a 6 or 7 bolt?

the 6 bolt came in the 90 to 92 2.0 talon. the 7 bolt came in the 93 to 94 2.0 talon and the 95 to 99 2.0 turbo talon. the 6 bolt is better.

Just an addon the 92 also can have a 7 bolt motor. If it was manufactured before April of 1992 then it is a 6 bolt anything after that date it will be a 7 bolt. I have had two 1992 stock talons and both have had 7 bolts in them.

Where can you find the egr valve on a 95 Eagle Talon?

on a 95 talon with a 420a.. the egr will be a metal tube in the back of the intake, far right near the manifold. follow that down and forward to the front of the engine..there is a small disk like thing there. on 2 rubber tubes. it works by vacumme and should allow air to flow one way. this is the egr valve.

Its just right of the intake manifold. About an inch to be exact. Easy to get to...be careful though, there is a fragile vacuum line attatch to the egr valve. If its old and dry, the line will break. I know, I just broke mine today 03-08-07...

It's on the back of the air intake manifold, you can buy a haynes manual that will show a pic at any car parts store

Why might a 1991 Eagle Talon rev up and down while idling?


I will try adjusting the idle screw tommaro.. but i have the same problem.

As well as an srs light.. But i tested with a voltimeter, the ohms and such on the throttle position sensor..above the Idle Air Controll..

not much on IAC recommending its bad.. TPS made things go click near the fans and such.. i know this also controls fuel, maybe that was one of the 3 clicks..

fans don't work.. but worked before i let the car sit for a while.. i have yet to hard-wire them..nothing to do it safely really.. I'll expand more when i get fourther..


if its an automatic pull up the hand brake and place the car in drive and then get a Phillip screw driver and right where the intake tube begins from use the screw driver to adjust the engine`s rev from going up and down. Same for manual transmission has well.

On mine there is this connetion on the throttle body, one geen wire and plug, and it was found to be faulty. When it was unpluged the revs stopped and i found no differenc in fuel or running order on the engine.

The problem your having with the idle surge is caused by your air idle control servo, either it's dirty or its bad, it's a little cylinder looking object underneath the throttle body, it a very common problem with eclipse talon and laser, generally the turbo models, I've seen it many times at my shop, we specialize in dsm's, "diamond star motors" that's why your idle goes up and down, and the srs light is your air bag light, means its either disconnected or bad, and for your fan, start with the fuses and relays, sounds like a blown fuse, cause the tps, or throttle position sensor, which is the little black sensor on top of the throttle body with a plug on it, only tells the computer how much throttle your using that way the ecu knows how much fuel to use

AnswerThe idle is set too high. Lower it using the idle adjustment screw. If the idle gets too low when the up and down reving stops, your idle air controller (IAC) is defective, either replace it or just leave it, it shouldn't cause any other problems.

How much boost can the eagle talon handle?

Stock turbo can run close to 14 PSI...but you can increase as much as your turbo can. The engine will not last as long with higher boost. Upgrading internals such as pistons, rods, crankshaft, camshaft, and valves can allow much higher boost.

Manual trans '90 - '94 1.8L API GL-4 or higher SAE 75W-90 or 75W-85W 1.90qts(1.8L) " FWD NA API GL-4 or higher SAE 75W-90 or 75W-85W 2.30qts(2.2L) " FWD Turbo API GL-4 or higher SAE 75W-90 or 75W-85W 2.30qts(2.2L) " AWD API GL-4 or higher SAE 75W-90 or 75W-85W 2.40qts(2.3L) Auto trans fluid '90 - '94 1.8L Dia ATF SP or MITSUBISHI PLUS ATF or equivelant 6.40qts(6.1L) " 2.0L NA Dia ATF SP or MITSUBISHI PLUS ATF or equivelant 6.40qts (6.1L) " 2.0L Turbo Dia ATF SP or MITSUBISHI PLUS ATF or equivelant 7.40qts(7.02L) From the Chrysler FAQ Question: Can the so-called "universal" automatic transmission fluids be used in all Chrysler Corporation vehicles calling for ATF+? The labels of the universal brands do not mention Chrysler applications. Answer: There's a good reason why universal brands do not mention Chrysler applications. Chrysler now recommends that only ATF+ Type 7176 (PN 4467721) be used in all Chrysler automatic transmissions with locking torque converters. Substituting any other automatic transmission fluid can lead to drivability problems. Mopar ATF+ allows more slippage than other friction-modified fluides.

Where can you find a wiring diagram for the spark plugs on a 1995 Eagle Talon 2.0L turbo?

Are you needing a diagram on where the plug wires go? I added a picture to this question, sorry if it is too dark. EDIT: Picture is on the right under Web Links. There should also be numbers on the coil that indicate which wire goes to which spark plug.

If you need to ask, it might be much better to take it to a reputable shop. But there are some good write ups in some of the Jeep forums that it can be swapped by dropping the oil pan & loosening the rear journals & slipping a replacement in.

Is a 1995 Eagle Talon a dependable car?

So far my eagle with a 420a, is very easy to work on.. I've replaced the cylinder head, and belts and idle pulley, .. should go another 100,000 it's at 265,000 now. It's idleing high now and the fans don't work after sitting for over a year.. I'd say the car is a keeper...

The 95 Eagle Talon ranks a 5 on the repair list. On a scale of 1 to 5, while 1 being the easiest to repair, 5 is the hardest. They are great cars but a B*tch to work on...

AnswerIt all depends of how well it was taken care of prior to your owning it. This is the same answer to any car with the same question. AnswerIf you can make repairs yourself. Otherwise, it will cost a lot of money to have a shop replace things like the alternator, starter, timing belt (must be done at least every 60,000 miles) AnswerIt depends on which one you're looking at. a 95 Eagle Talon ESi wont be a car that is too expensive to work on, I've worked on my ESi only a couple of times since I've owned it, and nothing major, just suspension and an alternator belt. The ESi's 420A engine is a common engine so there are a lot of parts at pick and pulls for it.

The TSi however is a car that is usually found as an AWD Turbo, which alone says that it probably has been bagged. It's not that the car itself is unreliable, because it's an amazing car, the 4G63T engine in it is ranked the #1 inline 4 engine in the world along with the SR20DET, it's the same engine in the Mitsubishi Evolution, it's just that these cars have most likely not been taken care of, they've been raced hard, redlined etc, it's hard to find one that hasn't.

If you are looking at a TSi, make sure the person you're buying it from has kept records of when things like the timing belt have been done.

How do you replace the headlight assembly located on a 1995 Eagle Talon?

Replacing the Eagle Talon headlights on a 2g is actually a big task for the first time. I will do my best to cover it

There are 3 bolts on top, and one bolt on the bottom but the bolt on the bottom faces in, I'm guessing it is used for aiming the light. The 3 bolts on top are easy, there's 2 right on top, then there's the 3rd one, on the side by the blinker, bit of a tight squeeze but you can get it.

The 4th bolt is where a lot of work comes in, after you do it the first time though, you will think it's easy, it's just a little nerve racking if you don't have any experience with cars, because the entire front bumper has the come off.

Basically, unbolt the entire front bumper from the car, there's about 8 screws under the bumper, I think 6 across the top by the rad, in each wheel well you need to unscrew the splash guard and pull that back, and look up, there will be 2 bolts on the bumper going into the body, unbolt those, turning the wheel of the car away from where you need to unbolt makes it easier to see. Then go under the car, and there's 4 big bolts, 2 for each support arm, unbolt those, then pull the bumper off, voila, there's the single bolt that you need to unscrew, make sure you unplug the headlights and pull them out.

Seems like a lot of work, but once you just go for it, it's not that big of a deal.

All the bolts, EXCEPT for the 4 bolts on the support arms are 10mm, and all the screws are +.

Where is the transmission drain plug on a 1995 Eagle Talon?


If it has one it will be on the transmission pan. Some trans do not have a drain plug, and the pan must be removed to drain the fluid.-NOT TRUE!!!

Plug being on the drain pan is only true for an automatic transmission and yes there is one there. If it's automatic turbo it has 2 drain plugs on/near the pan and non turbo automatic there is on drain plug on the pan.

The manual tranny drain plug on a 2g dsm turbo is a single bolt on the inside of the tranny (opposite side of the where the cv axle attaches) near the crossmember. The tranny drain plug for a non turbo dsm is on the bottom part of the transmission and is also a single bolt.

Why might a 1995 Eagle Talon not stay running without your foot on the gas?

The idle control solonoid is not functioning properly. Take it off and clean it and where it attaches to the throtle body, GoodluckJoe Another possibility is that you are low or out of oil. This happened to my 96 ESi when I had a major oil leak from the oil pressure sensor. If your oil is too low, the car will cut out to save itself.
